On-tap at the Union Oyster House in Boston.
Deep red color, short tight head. Good retention and spotty lace.
The smell has a good balance of hops and malts.
The taste also is nicely balanced, actually had a bit more hoppy finish than I was expecting.
The mouthfeel is quite creamy smooth, vey drinkable, medium body.
Another good beer, pretty good example for the style, a nice surprise.
apparently only available in Boston, part of Sam Adams charity program.

I believe this is only available in Massachusetts, but if you are in the great city of Boston, you would be better served by trying another craft beer that you can't get in your home state/country.

I have had this a couple of times now, and nothing special. I consider it below average.
